Just saying that sometimes you see an end result which on the face of it is so wrong, but because of the way it was reported, have no idea how the situation developed, that might explain such irrational behaviour a bit more.


I guess the ethnicity of the victim is why it hit the national news. If it had been an English youth who got beaten we might not of heard about it. Troubled times we live in.

Oh, I'm sorry. Is the High Command sending you to the Eastern Front to fight the Germans?

Hey, I was kidding about the Eastern Front. Obviously you won't be going there.

Spoiler! :
The Southern Front seems more likely...

Very true. And we all know what the papers are like in this country.

I just do not understand the mentality of thugs like this: they are bully boys, cowards, ignorant and thick. Any such attack disgusts me (I hate any form of bullying, ganging up, etc.), but if it was because the lad was an asylum seeker then they are even dumber than I first thought. Neanderthals.

My heart goes out to anyone who is attacked in such a brutal way. Best wishes to the lad.

:shock:
Cause you are beautiful
Your scars are beautiful, like the Jade
You'll still shine when you sink into the sea
Where the bleeding scarlet jealousy
Carves away your belief

Really? You're wrong! I am shocked and upset that this has happened and I fear the death count will rise. It usually does. You aren't reading me correctly. And I think I know why!

"Putin props up Assad.

Syrians try to flee.

Trump bans Syrian refugees because they're Muslim.

Assad kills them.

Trump blames Obama."

"Has media lost its mind?
Obama orders 7,000 airstrikes on #Syria; he's called weak.
Trump orders strike on one airfield; suddenly he's FDR"

"The Spectator Index
BREAKING: British foreign minister Boris Johnson cancels trip to Russia scheduled for the 10th of April"

"Another thing to watch now: All the Kremlin shills saying strikes *prove* Trump is independent of Russia. All of them: the exact same line."
